Stephanie Dorthea Mills born March 22, 1957

Stephanie Mills started her career on the stage of the legendary Apollo Theater and then became a household name when she stared as Dorothy in the Broadway play ‘The Wiz’. Although Diana Ross did a wonderful job in the movie ‘The Wiz’, I love the strength and soul in Stephanie’s voice and believe she should would have done a marvelous job in the role as well. She is one of the most underrated singers I know and  you just can’t deny her talent.

The Grammy & American Music Awards winner is still singing and will be performing at the Essence Music Festival this year. She has a new album titled “Breathless” coming soon and fans can keep up with her on her Facebook &Twitter.
